We are sitting in EuFatwa office, but what is thisorganisation actually about? Is it a company, a religious court, an office? – No, none of those! Its best definition would probably be ‘an authority’. If any article bears our stamp, all Muslims know that it complies with their religious prescriptions, i.e., that they can consume the food freely. Naturally, our authority status does not stem from ourselves. At the moment, the competent religious authority of the Islamic Republic of Iran certifies our standard; though we are also negotiating with other countries.
